WP External Links (nofollow new window seo)
[resolved] [Plugin: WP External Links] Big URls, only 4 links each post getting "nofollow" attribute (3 posts)

    I checked in the source code of my posts and discovered that the plugin was adding nofollow only up to 4 links at each post. It should be adding it to all of them.

    The weird thing is that after I tested 6 "nofollow-like" plugins I saw the same thing hapenning: only 4 of all the links on the post had the nofollow parameter on its output.

    I think my link URls might be to long and wordpress is having some kind of issue processing it, could you please check for me if there is a solution?

    I pasted a slice of a typical post of my that does that in here so you use as test content.

    Thank you,

    Hello Marcello, sorry for the very late response. Must have overlooked this issue

    When I test your link, it seems that when there is a space in the href-attribute it is not recognized as external link, like f.e.:

    <a href=" http://www.wordpress.org">WP</a>

    This will probably be easy to fix (although technically there should not be a space there).

    The bug on spaces in href attribute is fixed in version 1.40.
